"College is the beginning of a journey, one
of self exploration. We find ourselves as
young adults and attempt to mold into
future professionals. We are enriched both
academically and socially, setting into
motion what we will ultimately become --
productive individuals who will all make a
contribution to better the world we live in. "

"A discovery is said to be an accident
meeting a prepared mind. "
The best part about being involved is meeting and working
with some amazing people. It was very easy to get
involved. I love every minute of running from event to
event and planning each activity because seeing so many
happy faces after the event makes all the dedication and
hard work worth it.
